10 Small Business Ideas That You Can Consider for Spring
Home Business Magazine|Spring 2020
Spring is a time for renewal. The long winter has come and gone, replacing blustering winds, leafless trees and frosty mornings with newborn lambs and the first rays of summer. Flowers aren’t the only things that start to sprout up in spring though; it’s the perfect opportunity for a new small business to make its mark.

Whether temporary or the start of a beautiful adventure, there are loads of small businesses you can start to make spring a more exciting, profitable season.

1. Easter-themed gifts

What’s more spring than an Easter celebration? Launching an Easter-themed company is a great way to get some seasonal business and avoid the stress of having to think long-term. Selling Easter baskets is just one excellent money-maker at this time of year that arty types should absolutely look into.

As the holiday creeps closer, people will be clamoring for Easter baskets for their hunts. Whatever the weather, there are going to be kids out looking for chocolate eggs, and they’re going to need baskets. You can either buy cheap baskets for your business in bulk or go down a more artisan direction and weave your own bespoke ones. Perfect for selling at local events in the run-up.

One of the best parts of business ideas like this is you can drop them after the holiday and not miss out on any future sales. However, there is a lot you can do with this idea. Your baskets could develop into hampers, and by Christmas, you could be selling handmade gift baskets full of everyone’s favorite goodies.

2. Gardener

The spring brings with it good weather, giving everyone’s lawn the chance to grow again. Someone is going to need to cut that grass and tend to those gardens.

Gardening is the perfect small business because there is a huge market of people who simply don’t have the time to do it themselves. Lots of customers would prefer to tend their gardens, but can’t commit because of their job or family. A lot of older people enjoy having a well-kept garden but might not have the energy or strength to do the work required. Part of the beauty of this small business is its not just a way to earn some money, but is a way to become a community asset.

This is one of the easiest ways for green thumbs to do what they love and get paid for it. Dedicate a couple of days a week to your gardening and there will be lots of scope for your business to grow throughout the summer. You’ll learn a lot about gardening and craftout a little niche for yourself.

3. Website developer

Temporary spring businesses aren’t just for outdoorsy folks. Website development is one of the fastest-growing businesses around, and a great thing to latch onto early in the year.
